California currently has four waivers that are open to children, including a newer waiver for developmental disabilities. All waivers are HCBS 1915(c) Medicaid waivers, and these programs waive parental income. For general information on California’s waivers, see this list of waivers.
California also offers a range of home and community based services to those already enrolled in Medicaid through a state plan 1915(i) program, including respite, environmental accessibility, vehicle modification, day programs, and therapies. It also has a Community First Choice program, allowing those already enrolled in Medicaid to receive personal care services.
